* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The book opens with Scarlet's introductory scene, in which she is so enraged by the authorities' lackluster investigation of her grandmother's disappearance that she hurls produce at the wall of the tavern she's supposed to be selling it to. She follows this almost immediately by reading the riot act to the tavern's patrons for their mockery of Cinder. These scenes thoroughly establish Scarlet to have a strong sense of justice and determination, an unusually open mind about cyborgs and Lunars, and a ''hell'' of a temper.



* FieryRedHead: Scarlet is introduced getting so mad she throws produce at the building she's supposed to be selling it to.

* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: According to Jacin he taught himself to put all his emotions and thoughts aside during duty in order to not attract attention - since guards are expected to be "brainless puppets" that are supposed to be easily controlled.

* RaisedByGrandparents: Scarlet, since she was seven.

to:

* PostRapeTaunt: A near-miss, but the trope gets a nod when [[spoiler:Wolf's brother Ran]] mentions thinking about raping Scarlet in order to taunt Wolf about it afterwards. He claims he finds the idea of intercourse with a human too repugnant, however, so he decides to skip straight to killing her.
* RaisedByGrandparents: Scarlet, since Scarlet came to live with her grandmother when she was seven.

Added DiffLines:

* KidsAreCruel: Helped along by FantasticRacism - apparently it's a fairly common practice for members of the Lunar nobility to keep captive Earthens for their children to practice their glamour on. [[spoiler:Scarlet]] spends some time this way after being abducted to Luna, and the little monster in question chiefly seems to enjoy tormenting her with visions of vermin [[BodyHorror invading her body]].

* BelligerentSexualTension: Scarlet and Wolf.

to:

* BelligerentSexualTension: Scarlet and Wolf. For just one example, Scarlet resorts to actually winging Wolf's arm with a bullet to make him back off of killing [[spoiler:Ran]], after failing to get through to him by any other means. This act seems to impress Wolf immensely.

** [[spoiler: Though the whole plan may be backfiring on her now, as it turns out the plague has mutated, developing at a faster rate and now affecting Lunars as well]].
*** [[spoiler: Unfortunately it doesn't--Levana actually gets a sample of the new strain and uses it to try to kill Winter. She also plans to use it on her own people just so she can try to play savior when she delivers the cure.]]

* BondVillainStupidity: Averted with most thaumaturges, who tend to go straight for the kill, but Queen Levana has an unfortunate habit of succumbing to this when the main characters are involved.
